TELANGANA social in Tri Valley of Bay area

to ALL the TELANGANAS dwelling in the cities of Dublin, Pleasanton, Livermore, San Ramon, & Danville (and so on):

The one and only requirement is to have a penchant for TELANGANA.
We should feel the urge to have a common group to share, grow, perpetuate and permeate. I’m sure everybody is unique and have their own set of interests, taste but we probably do cross roads with each other (as in physically in our day-to-day commute and in our interests, needs, and wants). There is nothing like an absolute conglomeration of unified diversity.
So when and if you come across this and feel the same way or not…………….take a plunge and be a part of what you are and will be! Wherever you live in Tri valley and whatever you do come celebrate TELANGANAM. Do not forget to record your email in your response and spread the word to your friends and relatives.

Create and garner new friendships; support existing and new families/individuals in the area; guide the younger ones; share the cultural givings; professional, social chit-chats; common good of  Telangana.

Let’s get this going and help all our fellow Telanganas along with our own self.

Macy’s Alessia Leather Sectional Sofa, 3 Piece – $2510

Bought this sectional for our family room and we mistakenly ordered the chaise orientation to be on the right rather then left. It’s new still covered and we would like to replace it with the right piece.

Here’s the URL from Macy’s on the product details:

If you buy this now from Macy’s it’ll cost $3,697.00+taxes+shipping but since I ordered this during Thanksgiving week, I got it for $2789. I’m taking off 10% (shipping and taxes). It’s a great deal for a new sectional which has not been opened yet.

Prefer cash only and serious buyers only please.

the INDIAN umbrella in Tri-city area in the Trivalley

to ALL the INDIAN-ORIGIN residents of the cities of Dublin, Pleasanton, & Livermore:

We should feel the urge to have a common group with disregard to all the regions where we hail from in India, language, creed. I’m sure everybody is unique and have their own set of interests, taste but we probably do cross roads with each other (as in physically in our day-to-day commute and in our interests, needs, and wants). There is nothing like an absolute conglomeration of unified diversity.
So when and if you come across this thread and feel the same way or not…………….take a plunge and be a part of what you are and will be! Wherever you live in these 3 cities (Dublin, Pleasanton, & Livermore) and whatever you do come celebrate INDIANNESS. Do not forget to record your email in your response and spread the word to your friends and relatives.

Let’s get this going and help all our fellow Indians along with our own self.

moving to Dublin/Pleasanton/Livermore – Renting

The review underneath has originated as a result of responding to an inquiry. Though it would help all or some who’ll be seeking an advise (I also advise you to do your own ground work before u decide) – I know how critical of a decision it would be when you are moving to a new area……..GOOD LUCK!

Springhouse, Eaves, Hacienda Commons doesn’t portray a clean, elegant on-premises feel though, to my limited knowledge, has a sizable Indians. Archstone Hacienda and Archstone Emerald has a lot better aura overall and probably decent size of desi tenants. After a month ……. and a half of viewing, reviewing here is my take on the area apts:

Criteria: lot of Indian tenants
Tier I: Eaves, Archstone Hacienda, Hacienda Commons

Tier II: Springhouse, Stoneridge, Iron Horse Trail, Park Siera, Emerald Park, Cottonwood, Parkwood, Archstone Emerald

Criteria: bang for the buck
Park Siera, Iron Horse Trail, Cottonwood, Emerald park
(all in DUBLIN)

Criteria: expensive for what they offer
Springhouse, Gatewood, Eaves, Hacienda Commons, Stoneridge

Of course, all of the apartments included here are extremely convenient, centered around all the big employers in the area, close to shopping, entertainment, and a lot more which anybody might want to get involved in. They are all close to the intersection of I-580 & I-680.
